AG Kane Gets Two Weeks To Give Ethics Board Justice’s Emails

Pennsylvania’s judicial ethics court is giving state Attorney General Kathleen Kane two weeks to produce material for a pending disciplinary case against Supreme Court Justice Michael Eakin. Judge Jack Panella with the Court of Judicial Discipline signed an order Thursday setting a Feb. 25 deadline to fulfill a demand for emails involving Eakin since 2008. If convicted, Eakin could be removed from the bench. Kane’s spokesman says she will comply but believes she’s already turned over all Eakin-related materials in her agency’s possession.
